TRAIN THE TRAINER
EQUIPPING TRAINERS TO LEAD IN EMPLOYABILITY TRAINING
The Facework Train the Trainer Programme builds the capacity of those who are using Facework resources to develop the employability skills of young people.
Participants on the programme may be teachers/educators with a background in learning or maybe inexperienced volunteers keen to play a role. With this in mind, the programme is structured around a flexible set of Modules and Units, with some participants taking all modules/units and others only those that they need and that address the gaps in their capacity.
We are happy to train anyone who has a passion for helping young people Face Work and knows that this initial training may inspire participants to take up further training in the careers profession. However, those who attend the training must have experience of being employed and/or self-employed and must have some experience in presentation or teaching groups of individuals.
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin
THE TRAINING MODULES
There are 6 modules each with 4 individual units in the Train the Trainer programme. Some of the sessions can be delivered online and after each module, participants will be provided with summary handouts and a full set of resources used in the Facework Training sessions.
The focus is to create a high level of understanding of the concepts and ideas that Facework is built around and to demonstrate the value and importance of the Facework approach to employability.
Module 2 looks at the skills of a great trainer and seeks to build the capacity of participants to deliver differentiated learning sessions in a way that is engaging and impactful and learner-centred.
Module 3 takes a deep dive into the Facework Soft-Skills curriculum, the learning activities and co-designing new resources with learners.
We also look at how to help students discover their Character Strengths and understand their personalities.
Facework believes that we learn best through doing and in teaching once, we learn twice! In this module we show you how with ongoing support you can work with others in establishing a Facework Chapter and grow your skills.
Building on Facework's experience of establishing community workspaces, engaging with employers, and utilising social media, this module introduces activities that engage partners and build peer -career support.
THE IMPORTANCE OF CAREER GUIDANCE
It is important that anyone running training on employability skills understands the importance of good quality career guidance.
This module run by career professionals shows you the importance of signposting to career experts.
This is your Team section. It's a great place to introduce your team and talk about what makes it special, such as your culture and work philosophy. Don't be afraid to illustrate personality and character to help users connect with your team.

Facework has developed a range of creative education and training resources which participants will be instructed on how to use in training groups or one-to-one. Central to the ethos of Facework is that trainers help learners co-design new education resources.
